Rage Against the Machine guitarist, Tom Morello, took to Twitter this weekend to share his opinions on the Seattle restaurant 5 Point Cafe. He accused the restaurant of being “anti-worker” and having a “super rude staff.” This accusations only came out after he and his entourage skipped to the front of “the line” of people and tried to book a special room. After being told he and his crew could not be accommodated, Morello vented on Twitter to tweet the following.

In response, the restaurant’s owner David Meinert posted an open letter on Facebook addressing the accusations made by Morello.

A tweet from our pal

»Tom Morello @tmorello
»Five Point restaurant in Seattle is the WORST. Super rude & anti-»worker. Shittiest doorman in the Northwest. Prick. Spread the word.

For the record Tom Morello - The 5 Point is totally pro-worker. We try to pay more than any other small restaurant, and on top of the higher pay, we offer health insurance, paid sick days, paid time off, retirement and profit share. Sorry if you had an issue with our staff, but typically our staff is awesome, and when they are not, it’s usually a reflection of the customer. Act like a prick = get treated like a prick.

I have to say, your attacking a small business without knowing anything about it, or addressing your problem with them directly before you go on a public rant, pretty much sucks. Just lost a ton of respect for you, and I’ve been a fan for years, both of your work in Rage and your work for workers rights since.

PS - rock stars don’t get special treatment at The 5 Point. We couldn’t give less of a shit. Sorry.

And PSS - I’m the owner of the 5 Point and have worked to raise the minimum wage in Seattle and support the same nationally, worked to get paid sick days law in Seattle, and am supporting a City sponsored retirement plan for employees of small businesses. I hope you do the same for your employees on the road…

PSSS - turns out he and his crew didn’t get let in as the place was at capacity and there was a line. No one was being let in. According to our doorman who I totally trust, Tom and his crew were all totally rude. Quote from the door guys “I knew who he was, we had no room, his whole party was being rude. He wanted a special room in the back. Clearly had no ideas what it is like inside. I’ve told bigger rock stars than him no.”

I knew Tom is an asshole but geez…arrogance much?

So tonight was a joyous event at karate, but not really for me. I am going through some really tough anxiety shit that has taken a huuuuuuge toll on my body. I was awarded my belt, but I couldn’t participate in regular class cause I’m still weak. Sensei came over and asked my mama what was going on (I couldn’t attend class last week either) and she was honest and said my anxiety attacks had come back. To my surprise, pleasant surprise, he said he knew exactly what I was going through cause when he was 16 to 17 he suffered from awful anxiety attacks. He said not to worry about a thing and he would help any way he can. Guys, you don’t know how much it means to me to have someone, especially Sensei whom I look up to, who empathizes with my pain. I felt a burden lifted. At my old dance studio the teachers AND students thought I was a freak. I am accepted at the dojo more than I ever will be at the dance studio. I want to cry happy tears.

I have found a home.
